The Five Lined Cardinal comes from the reef flats, lagoons, and seaward reefs of Fiji. They have a long slender shape and are an iridescent silver colour. The large black striped eyes are offset by a bright yellow and black spot near the tail which confuses possible predators which way the fish is facing.

An aquarium with a cave and peaceful tank mates is suitable for this slow and methodical swimmer. It tends to hide in sea grass or other plants, or may use long spined urchins (Diadema setosum) for camouflage. If a 6 foot aquarium is available, it will handle a small group of this species. As a group, they will establish a strict hierarchy without aggressiveness.

The Five Lined Cardinalfish requires a well a well balanced diet of foods such as flake foods, pellet foods and chopped meaty foods.
